I’ve never given Yorkston the time of day as I can’t fucking stand King Creosote, who signed him.. An absolute walloper. I do however have a lot of time for the Pictish Trail.

Stay tuned for more hot takes on ageing folk musicians from Fife!

I saw James Yorktown in Norwich about 15 years ago and it was very dull.

I also saw Pictish Trail support Josie Long once and hated him.

I'll admit to not knowing much King Creosote but they did make this and it is pretty great

FIXED. God, my heart stopped for a second there.

I saw him at Tower Records in 02 at some all day thing with Electric Soft Parade. I can't remember much about his performance. Though I must give him credit, he performed at one of my favourite gigs of all time playing guitar for Daniel Johnston at Union Chapel.

I think I'm fully on board with Billy Nomates now.

Thought she was a weirdo for a long time and she's still slightly annoying but this new album has several big tunes.

I’m liking the new one too. Maybe a bit overlong and her voice can annoy me at times but there’s a few bangers included

The uptempo stuff delivers every time. Some big chorus' on those tunes. Some of the slower tunes miss the sport though. (S)he(?) should have gone balls to the wall on the big tunes (pun intended). It received a decent score on my 2023 album scores tracker spreadsheet. In 11.5 months I'm going to show Kev what real data manipulation looks like, BABY.

Gaz and Iggy are quite meh tbh, B&S just slightly better than that but a really slow start to the year so far.

The only redeeming feature of the B&S album is the brass section sounds exactly the same as the second Embrace album.

This Dave Rowntree album is fucking terrible. Jesus christ. What a cunt. Who signed this off? Who sent it to print? Who pressed send? Someone must be held accountable.

Tony McCarroll would dick all over this.

Wss gonna give the Dave Rowntree album a go but maybe I won't now :-X

Been listening to The Murder Capital's new one over the weekend, quite like it. Italia 90's album also seems pretty good on first listen.

The Dave Rowntree record is completely forgettable, though I didn't think it was awful. Though it's probably a case of me going in expecting the worst & my reaction just being a big barny style MEH. The single made me think we was getting 45 minutes of sub-par LCD Soundsystem tunes, but reality is the record sounds like a bunch of Albarn solo rejects. Perhaps if I start that rumour it'll become folk law like Billy Corgan writing the big Hole album.

First listen of the new GBV record was not a positive one. Really struggling with the latest releases, too polished, too ROCK. Wish he'd get back to making records that sound like total shit again.

Italia 90 has a couple of big tunes but overall nothing special.

I thought Murder Capital was bland. I remember liking the debut but this has no balls.

SuperGaz is winning 2023 still so far.
